Guðni Th. Jóhannesson was sworn in as the president of Iceland yesterday, Monday. Guðni and his family have already begun to plan their move into the presidential residence at Bessastaðir.

The new president has five children, which is sure to give Bessastaðir a more homely atmosphere. “We’ll have a trampoline and football goal posts for the children in the garden,” he told the National Broadcasting Service yesterday.
